For the record, I’m not going to hook up with my boss.

I'm a lot of things—a screwup, a basket case, a flunky. But when I take a nanny job to be near my pregnant sister, I swear to myself I’ll walk the straight and narrow, which means I cannot fall for my insanely hot boss.

I don't want to be tempted by that rugged rancher. By his chiseled muscles or southern charm or the way he snuggles his kids at bedtime. Ethan Carter won't get the key to my heart, no matter how much I want him. 

Between us, she's the last thing I need as I finalize my hellish divorce. 

What sane man trying to rebuild his life wants a hot nanny with long, sexy hair, curves for miles, and a smart mouth? A perfectly kissable, pouty mouth that I shouldn't notice.

My focus is on my kids and my ranch, not the insufferable siren who sleeps in the room next to mine. It doesn't matter that she wins over my kids in a heartbeat or runs my life better than I do. Tori Duran is the one woman I can't have and shouldn't want, no matter how much I crave her.

    This book was an awesome and entertaining read. I loved the storyline between Ethan and Tori. Definitely kept me on my toes and made me want to read more! I love the picture the Martin painted of Ethan. What woman wouldn’t want a swoon worthy southern boy to fall in love with? Must read! And can’t wait to read more!

    Tori is, for a lack of better words, a hot mess. She is insecure and has been hurt. She is trying to grow into this wonderful woman without even knowing she has it in her all along. Ethan is this handsome rancher that has been through a lot of heartache and has been out in a position that does now allow him the freedom someone his age normally experiences. He is trying to be a great single father, great businessman as well as son and man overall. They both find themselves in this situation and the story begins! I loved the Spanish references in this book and this book had me laughing many, many times! Mika and Cody are the gems of this story. I want them in my pocket at all times! Once this story got going it just kept you hooked. I read this in 24 hours. I enjoyed it all. Be warned- steamy scenes ahead! Ethan is everything you want a man to be. What I mean is and not necessarily his physical looks, but his hard work ethic, his strong familial views and emphasis, his respect for women and his stand up guy attitude is just the making of a hero lead. The author does a great job in telling this love story of finding, unexpectedly, your soulmate/ best friend/ lover/ partner/ teammate and so much more. I also loved getting both Tori and Ethan’s POV’s. Tori is hilarious to say the least and she really cracked me up. I love when a book can do that! **pleas excuse any typos (writing this on my phone) and also writing after just finishing the book so I have all the excitement still in me.**

  • Reckless for Ethan

    By EternalHopelessRomantic
    Shameless was the first book I ever read by Lex Martin and I didn't think it was possible to love any other Lex Martin book more than Shameless and she proved me wrong. She absolutely stole my heart with Reckless. I love, Love, LOVED the sh*t out of Reckless! The story is amazing and Ethan...Don't even get me started on Ethan. He's so dreamy! *insert heart eyes* I would seriously have his babies if I could and I'm not a maternal person, so that says a lot about his character. lol But he's so good with his kids and the way he treats Tori is everything I want in a man. I truly envy Tori and want Ethan all for my own, but I'll settle for her having him since I can't have him. lol I highly recommend Reckless to all romance lovers out there and give it five out of five stars! <3
  • Enjoy the read

    How do you mend a tattered self-image? How do you repair a wild child reputation? What will it take for people to take you seriously? Tori thought unknowingly sleeping with a married man ruined her, and it nearly did mentally. Lucky for her, Kat is there for her and wants to get her out of her funk. Enter Ethan, Kat's neighbor. He's a single dad in need of a nanny for a couple of months. Boy, was he not prepared for what he was getting. No matter what he feels for Tori, she is great with his kids and they love her. He vows to stay away from her, but as we all know that will never happen. These two do not communicate except with their bodies. Tori keeps wondering where she stands with Ethan, but she never asks him. I get that. What girl wants to ask her boss and boyfriend where "this" is going? But Ethan is so oblivious to a woman and her needs and fears. Tori doesn't want to screw up a good thing, but she's afraid she's just temporary. The confrontation at the birthday party was a long time in coming. Things are said, and not said, and done, and not done, that change the family dynamic. Will Tori and Ethan survive as a couple? Will the ranch survive financially? And what about Kat's baby? Enjoy the read ..
